Tree Removal FAQs

Sometimes a tree becomes damaged due to weather, disease, or insects, and can not be saved. Other times, a tree requires removal because it’s grown too large for its present setting or is causing damage to surrounding structures. If you find yourself in this situation, you will want to remove the tree very carefully. Arbor Source Professional Tree Care has the most up-to-date equipment and safety-training to remove trees of any size in any location. Here are some frequently asked questions about removing trees.

Should my tree be removed?

It may be difficult for a homeowner to determine if a tree should be removed. You can see if the tree is touching or causing damage to a nearby structure, or if the tree appears damaged or dying. The only way to be sure if a tree should be removed is to call a professional tree care service like the certified arborists at Arbor Source Professional Tree Care. Only an ISA-certified arborist is trained to thoroughly evaluate the situation and make a recommendation for what is best for your tree, as well as for the safety and security of your property. Some tree care services will recommend taking a tree out, one that should not be removed, simply to increase their revenue. At Arbor Source, we love trees and would never recommend a tree be removed that could be saved, unless you specifically wanted that tree removed.

What can I expect from your tree care removal service?

Arbor Source Professional Tree Care employs the practice and procedures of the International Society of Arboriculture to remove trees. Those methods include felling, trimming from the top of the tree down, and using heavy equipment when needed to prevent damage from falling limbs. We can remove the stump and leave your property clean and like new. Our safety-trained experts know which technique is appropriate for your situation. Once the tree is down, we can leave the wood cut up and ready for your fireplace or haul it away. You can trust our expert tree removal team to manage this challenging service efficiently and safely.

Do I need a permit to remove a tree?

Most often, yes, a permit is required to remove a tree. The experts at Arbor Source are familiar with the regulations from county to county to help you determine if you need a permit and proper procedures to get it. If your county does not approve your permit application, we can recommend alternative plans of action.

A tree is close to my house or another structure. What should I do?
